Subject: Great for Adults, too!
This is written during a time when children were a bit more educated than they are now and could follow basic instructions and knew how to get from "A" to "B" without someone drawing them a picture ;)
Learn how to make all crochet stitches,then make a pair of reins to rein in your little brother (cute image and demonstration of those reins in the book)
nice things you can actually make. Good for downloads, use PDF to get ALL the images, if you use an e-reader other files might not include any or all images FYI

Subject: Great for beginners with ONE BIG WARNING
I've been learning to crochet from this very nicely: doing a whole washcloth is not too large, like doing a muffler, but it's big enough to let me acquire the hang of tension, even gauge, and getting the hook in the right place. This is better than the other fifty crochet books here that I looked at, even if it's talking way too sweetly to a little girl of eight.

The warning is, this used the OLD TERMINOLOGY for stitches. What she calls a double crochet is what stitcher today call a single crochet, and the modern double crochet is her treble crochet. This is a concern with all old crochet books. Until you study their beginner's how-to, you don't know if they call a certain stitch slip-stitch, short stitch or single crochet (I've been reading LOTS of these). Watch yourself with all these books. Date is no guide, nor is country.
